The safest solvent that allows oil painters to utilize all traditional painting techniques without compromise

Quality solvent and medium and for general oil painting. Gamsol is also an excellent studio and brush cleaner.

Primary Uses for Gamsol:
  • Thinning oil colors. A little goes a long way; stiff oil colors relax immediately when a little Gamsol is added. Be careful not to thin oil colors too much with solvent alone, this can compromise the ability of the paint to form a paint film.
  • Modifying painting mediums. Our Galkyd line of painting mediums are formulated with Gamsol, so they readily accept Gamsol as a thinning agent. Note: Gamsol should not be added to painting mediums made with natural resins (dammar, copal, mastic). They require strong solvents such as turpentine.
  • Studio clean-up: brushes, palettes, palette knives, etc.
  • available in the following sizes: 4.2 oz,16.9 oz, 33.8 oz, 128 oz
  • No solvent odors, only the wonderful smell of oil colors
  • Widely used in oil painting classrooms

How does Gamsol achieve this level of performance and safety? Most solvents available to artists come from the industrial paint industry where solvent power and cheapness is prized. Gamsol is special: it is made for products and processes that come into more intimate contact with the body such as cosmetics, hand cleaners, and cleaning food service equipment.

Gamsol is a petroleum distillate but all the aromatic solvents have been refined out of it, less than .005% remains. Aromatic solvents are the most harmful types of petroleum solvents.

The Gamsol SDS shows that it has an Exposure Limit Value higher than most solvents available to artists. In addition, Gamsol’s flash point allows it to ship via air cargo as a non-hazardous material.

All of these factors have lead to Gamsol being used widely in oil painting classrooms; in those classes, there are no solvent odors, only the wonderful smell of oil colors

Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-purpose solvent!!! This has been a great multi-purpose solvent. I use it not only to clean my brushes at the end of a session but I like it to clean the brush during a color change since I don't have too many brushes yet, this cleans the brush nicely and doesn't affect the next color. I also use it straight with a neutral color for underpainting and it thins the paint nicely and dries quickly. Lastly I mix it with Galkyd medium and it helps the paint flow really well. Great Product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I Have Found I have tried other products, but prefer Gamsol above all others. It's odorless and does a terrific job of cleaning brushes, as well as thinning paint when necessary.

Can one use gamsol with water fixable oil paints??

Asked by: chercares
You do not need to use gamsol with water-mixable oils. Linseed oil is contained in both new and traditional oils. Water-mixable oils are real oils. They are water-mixable, not water-based. The new oils were developed to be used with water in the place of turpentine, mineral spirits or other solvents. Substituting water for turpentine In terms of the "fat over lean" rule, water can be thought of as a solvent for water-mixable oils, but for the best results do not use water. Although Artisan is fully mixable with water, Gamsol has stronger solvency than water which means that water-mixable oils will accept comparatively more gamsol than water. Therefore it can be thinned further with a thinner than with water in lower layers. Whether you use water or gamsol, you can still clean the brushes with water.

Thank you so much. but i had to ask one more question, is it suitable for the Bob ross cleaning bucket? and is it safe for the Bob ross and Bill alexander brushes?

Asked by: TheHappyPainter

Would the gamsol be good for cleaning the brush in between oil colors? and is it safe for natural hair brushes? if so please reply

Asked by: TheHappyPainter
Brush cleaning with Gamsol For brush cleaning during your painting session, first, wipe excess paint from brushes with a rag. Then dip your brush in a container of Gamblin Gamsol. Next, wipe the Gamsol and any remaining pigment from your brush with a second rag and continue painting. After your painting session, brushes can be further cleaned using soap and water. Use only as much Gamsol as you need for cleaning brushes throughout the painting session and for thinning and formulating painting mediums. The best type of containers to store Gamsol for brush cleaning are glass or metal jars with a screen which allows the pigment to settle on the bottom of the jar (such as Silicoil Brush Cleaning Tanks). Mark all jars and cans containing solvents with appropriate labels. Gamsol is safe for natural hair brushes. https://www.gamblincolors.com/oil-painting/mediums/oil-painting-mediums/
